Penguins dominate Predators for 3-2 series lead

Another game like this and he won't just win a second straight Stanley Cup; he could also walk away with another Conn Smythe Trophy. "They still have home ice".

It has become the ultimate homer series, where a neutral site may be needed to determine true hockey supremacy. Rinne, the Predators goaltender who was so brilliant in Nashville, turned back into a pumpkin in Pittsburgh. Whether or not it happens, I don't know. "We have had a number of selections the last couple of years and we feel that they'll all materialize into very good players for the Boston Bruins and I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't explore what could improve our hockey club now in the shorter term". And so it was 1-0, not even two minutes into the game.

Sidney Crosby pins down P.K. Subban and repeatedly shoves his head into the ice in an altercation behind the Penguins' net.

The Pittsburgh Penguins toyed with the Nashville Predators, 6-0, here Thursday night to take a 3-2 lead in the series but conventional wisdom has the good feelings shifting back to the Preds Sunday night when the series returns to the historically insane atmosphere of Bridgestone Arena.

They'll have to do it on the road, where no team has won this round. Pittsburgh leads the best-of-seven series 3-2. "We know we're going to be facing a desperate team". "I came here well-prepared and we just didn't have it tonight".

"We've got to get one more win now", said Schultz. "Taking one step forward, in my opinion, is not successful". After the third goal went by him to end the period, his night was over. Teams are 38-16 at home in the Cup final since 2009.

And, well, maybe we should have seen this coming.

The absence of Ryan Ellis has added injury to an insulting night for the Predators in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Penguins.

"I think Sid really understands the opportunity that this team has and he's not taking anything for granted", Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. "But it's hard just to sit here and say, oh, yeah, it's gone, everything is good".

Though the scores showed regression, the Penguins saw subtle progress, especially in Game 4, when they finally out-chanced the Predators in the series.

"No, I'm anxious about his record now at home and it's been outstanding", Fisher said. We're in the Cup Final. Twenty-four of the Penguins' shots went on goal, and six of those reached the back of the net for a 25 percent conversion rate. "It's going to be a battle going in there and we need to steal one in their arena".

No game sheet is complete without plus-minus, a sometimes misleading statistic that attempts to reflect a skater's two-way performance.

Oh, and for the record, Crosby didn't intentionally throw that water bottle. Subban had Crosby's leg locked but Crosby was on top and drove Subban's head into the ice several times. He also was a minus-2 and received a match penalty for cross-checking Olli Maatta in the face. Even two Swedes in Carl Hagelin and Viktor Arvidsson dropped the gloves as tempers flared.

Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final is a can't-miss show and not just for Penguins and Predators fans in Pittsburgh. Hainsey's second goal of the playoffs came 16:40 into the period. Rinne gave way to Juuse Saros at the start of the second period after stopping just six of nine shots, continuing his wildly uneven play. Rinne made six saves on nine shots in 20 minutes of ice time before ceding the crease to Saros, who stopped 12 out of 15 shots. The Cole Harbour, N.S., native has gotten stronger and stronger with each game of the final, setting up the Penguins lone goal in Game 3 and then scoring the only one himself in Game 4.

"When you give a puck to a player like that with speed, he can do risky things", Crosby's linemate Jake Guentzel said of the play that got the Penguins off to a running start. "You remind yourself you're in the Final, and as long as there's life, there's hope". Pittsburgh beat Ottawa 7-0 in Game 5 here in the conference final, and found themselves in Game 7 double OT a few days later.

The Preds defense looked atrocious to start the game and the Penguins took advantage.

That setup Patrick Kane's overtime victor, the craziest Cup clincher yet, which may be where this odd series in heading.

"He score", Malkin said of Kessel before the game.
